The best thing about Chili is that it requires about 30 minutes of your effort and a crockpot.  There are quick chili recipes that you can make in about 30 minutes, or what I recommend is prepping it in the morning before work and letting it slow cook all day.  Yes, this will take a bit longer, but it will be so worth it as you create about 6-8 servings.

I can’t get enough of it!  I always wanted to be the person in the office that slow cooked a chili throughout the day at my desk just so at lunch time, I could pour a hearty bowl and then when I got home, could continue eating the same pot.  Must be the pioneer in me that thinks about traveling with a pot of chili.  :-p

So here’s the Chili pick today brought to you by Chowhound.  The photo is Chowtastic, literally taken by.
